Strike action – how to access care and how we are continuing care

20 December 2022

It has been announced that the London Ambulance Service will be striking on Wednesday 21 December from midday to midnight. The following days may also be affected as a result.

While our staff and services will be working as normal, we are expecting our services to be busier than usual and ask you to use services responsibly and think NHS 111 first so we can prioritise our sickest patients.

Regardless of any strike action taking place, it is really important that patients who need urgent medical care continue to come forward as normal, especially in emergency and life-threatening cases – when someone is seriously ill or injured, or their life is at risk.

We are always here for those who need care.
